One of the things I look forward to the most when I go to Bikram yoga was drinking a box of coconut water after the 90 minute work out. My bikram yoga class usually sells O.N.E coconut water, and I’ve always loved it. It has been a while since I did a yoga class, so I was looking extra forward to it. But to my disappointment, they stopped selling O.N.E and replaced that with Zico Coconut Water.
The packaging of Zico is identical to O.N.E, just with different graphics, and without a straw. It has almost identical nutrition values as O.N.E but it doesn’t taste as good as O.N.E. While it was still pretty yummy, it was less sweet, and tasted more watery. I still prefer O.N.E better.
One box of coconut water has only 60 calories, 15 carbs, it has tons of potassium, and electrolytes, it’s an excellent drink to get before or during a hard work out. And it is excellent at re-hydrating you after the work out too. Served iced cold, so delicious.
I’ve been searching for coconut water in local stores but I haven’t had any luck yet. I think I’d have to settle to buy them online. Even with that option, I’d still go with O.N.E coconut water (review coming when I get my hands on one).
